• 1 cup flour (all purpose or whole wheat)
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons + ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1-2 tablespoons red food coloring (optional)
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1¾ cup hot water*
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and lightly grease a 9″ pie plate (it will be very full, so if you have something slightly bigger feel free to use that instead).
  2. In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, 2 tablespoons cocoa powder, baking powder, salt, buttermilk, oil and food coloring if desired until smooth. Spread into prepared pan — it will be thick! Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine brown sugar and ¼ cup cocoa powder. Sprinkle over cake batter in pan — DO NOT STIR. Top with hot water — DO NOT STIR.
  4. Place pie plate on an old baking sheet (in case it bubbles over) and bake for 35 minutes until top is dry and puffed — the sauce underneath will be runny (see notes). Let sit 10-15 minutes to thicken before serving warm with ice cream.
